Trust me! You don’t want to miss the 19th annual Fashion, Jewelry and Design Conference hosted by Initiatives in Art and Culture tomorrow and Saturday, November 10th and 11th.
I’ll be on a panel called “‘With This Ring…’ The Changing Landscape of Commitment” on Saturday. Other speakers and panelists include designers Zac Posen, Ralph Rucci, and Jason Wu; Alexander McQueen jewelry collaborator, Shaun Leane, and fashion icon Daphne Guinness; and models/activists Bethann Hardison and Ebonee Davis.

The conference’s theme is “White: Palette, Prism, Possibility,” and last week, I shared a video interview that I did with IAC’s founder and president, Lisa Koenigsberg, in which Lisa spoke about the theme and the special guests.
I have a few more clips to share about the guests I’m most obsessed with, including jeweler Shaun Leane, who collaborated on major works with the late, great Alexander McQueen.
In case you haven't noticed, we are #OBSESSED with the lineup for this year's @initiatives_in_art_culture conference! There are titans of design, retail, art, and more.

I’m also excited to see groundbreaking model/activist Bethann Hardison talk about diversity in fashion (or, really, the lack there of) with young model/activist Ebonee Davis. Lisa previewed that conversation for me as well.
We were absolutely thrilled to hear that Bethanne Hardison, groundbreaking model and diversity activist, will be speaking with Ebonee Davis, another extraordinary model and activist, about the need for more diversity across the fashion industry. This is a conversation that you don’t want to miss! ⠀ ⠀ Check out our interview with @initiatives_in_art_culture’s founder and President, Lisa Koenigsberg on #YouTube.⠀ If you haven’t purchased tickets to this great event yet, use our VIP code “WENDYB” for a special lowered rate! – – – #design #art #nyc #comingsoon #thingstodoinnyc #jewelry #fashion #model #modeling #diversity
